Bunrakuraku [jp Osaka]

Bunrakuraku :: Galaxy Gallery, 大阪市北区中央区千日前2-3-9 ユニバースビル1F, Osaka, 542-0074, Japan.

Bunrakuraku is a new interactive project from SaBa, exploring the intersection of technology, participation, and puppetry. Taking inspiration from international styles of puppet theater, ranging from Japanese Bunraku to Punch and Judy, this work explores the intersection of audience and puppeteer ― with a few extra limbs included. Bunrakuraku connects audiences from separate locations into a virtual, puppet theater space. Limbs appear and disappear, each controlled by a different audience member. In this space, an individual’s movements and actions are combined to form a single multi-limbed puppet. Here, people are encouraged to playfully engage with an unseen collaborator. Continue reading

Arcade Cabinet Curation

Arcade Cabinet Curation :: Curate a video game cabinet for the Cooperative Gaming Co-op :: Call for curators — Deadline: July 30, 2012.

As part of the Zero1 Biennial, John Bruneau and James Morgan are bringing together a wide range of game developers to show in a classic golden age setting. We are building a half a dozen arcade cabinets and collecting a few others from the area.

We were inspired by Anna Anthropy’s message that everyone should make games, and by conversations that we have had with her about the place of the arcade and playing in public.

Curators will be welcome to put what they like into their cabinet, solicit people, choose them or even use the games from people they know or admire. The point is to curate along the lines of a theme that will then be represented by the cabinet in a larger context. Continue reading

Illusions in Motion: Media Archaeology of the Moving Panorama and Related Spectacles

Illusions in Motion: Media Archaeology of the Moving Panorama and Related Spectacles by Erkki Huhtamo, MIT Press:

Beginning in the late eighteenth century, huge circular panoramas presented their audiences with resplendent representations that ranged from historic battles to exotic locations. Such panoramas were immersive but static. There were other panoramas that moved–hundreds, and probably thousands of them. Their history has been largely forgotten. In Illusions in Motion, Erkki Huhtamo excavates this neglected early manifestation of media culture in the making. The moving panorama was a long painting that unscrolled behind a “window” by means of a mechanical cranking system, accompanied by a lecture, music, and sometimes sound and light effects. Showmen exhibited such panoramas in venues that ranged from opera houses to church halls, creating a market for mediated realities in both city and country. Continue reading

Life in Code and Software: Mediated Life in a Complex Computational Ecology

Life in Code and Software: Mediated Life in a Complex Computational Ecology, David M. Berry (ed), Living Books About Life:

The essays in this collection explore the relationship between living, code and software. For Berry, technologies of code and software increasingly make up an important part of our urban environment – indeed, their reach stretches to even quite remote areas of the world. Life in Code and Software introduces and explores the way in which code and software are becoming the conditions of possibility for human living, crucially forming a computational ecology, made up of disparate software ecologies we inhabit. As such we need to take account of this new computational environment, Berry argues, and think about how today we live in a highly mediated, code-based world – a world where computational concepts and ideas are foundational, and within which, code and software become the paradigmatic forms of knowing and doing.
